Kia Ora Koutou,
I’m Henry and one of the new delegates in the Midcentral DHB. I’m a fresh PGY1 and a big believer in doctors looking after themselves to better care for their patients. For me, this means being able to regularly play lots of music and spend meaningful time with friends and whanau. My main goal is working towards getting the conditions, pay and leave that can reflect how much work we put in, to enable all of us to pursue our passions both in medicine and outside medicine.
I grew up in the Hawke’s Bay and landed my first job in Palmy, so have strong ties to the central region and the communities we look after. I’ve still got a bunch to learn but am always available to anyone with any concerns about what’s happening in their work life or otherwise. Please get in touch with any issues you are facing and I’ll do my best to attend to them.
